    plant grows out from a seed. The most common example is the sprouting from a seed of an angiosperm, a flowering plant, or a gymnosperm that are seed-bearing plants. For a seed to germinate, few external conditions are in need to be met as well as internal conditions of the seed such as its dormancy, viability and its vitality to sprout. When these internal conditions are met, the external conditions at the time of seed germination plays a big role. First of all, enough water is needed. It is…

    Germination of Brassica rapa Seeds Germination is a vital stage in a plants life, but it also plays a significant role in other animals’ (including humans) life cycle. It is the process in which a new plant grows from a seed. Due to the fact that plants are autotrophs; they use the process of photosynthesis to transform sunlight and make their own food. Germination occurs in gymnosperms and angiosperms when the seed is using its own nutrients, before it is able to photosynthesize. “The plant’s…

    Hydrogen Peroxide Help or Harm Seeds? Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a common household item. It is made of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. It is most commonly used in small concentrations to clean small cuts and scrapes by killing bacteria. This antiseptic kills the bacteria by tearing down their cell walls. In the last few years, hydrogen peroxide has been added to pesticides. This means that the food we consume has been growing in materials that contain hydrogen peroxide. We have a…

    • 6 Pages

    experiment is about the effect of microwave radiation exposure on the percent that radish seeds germinate. The hypothesis in this experiment is if the radish seed is placed in the microwave for 8 minutes, then the percent of germinated seeds would be the lowest out of all the times. This experiment is important because if something happens and radish seeds are exposed to microwave radiation people would be able to know if the radishes would germinate if they knew the time they were exposed. This…

    lentil bean seeds was affected by the environmental aqueous solutions, which was made up of either a table sugar, dextrose or a control. It presented that there was not a statistical difference between the table sugar or dextrose aqueous solutions in comparison to the radicle lengths since the P values were less than 0.05. Although, there was a statistical increase in radicle length with the comparison to the control. If these seeds were able to reach the average seed germination process in ten…

    Introduction/Purpose There are many parts to a seed. First, there is the testa (seed coat). It is the outside layer protecting the inside of the seed. On the side of the seed, there is a tiny hole called the micropyle. Water can be taken through the hole when it is ready to germinate. Inside the seed near the micropyle, there is a root called a radicle. When the seed begins to grow the radicle will come out the micropyle. The seed coat can protect the seed from many factors such as…
